Is it possible to grind your teeth to the gums?

The Red Sox blow a game with 2 outs in the 9th?
The Yankees rally with 3 in the 9th to tie the Red Sox?
The Lakers win?

This wasn't a sports day.
It was a country western song!

Not only have the Yankees caught us, but we now have more Teeth Grinders than Dodged Bullets!

You'll forgive me if I avoid Sports Center tonight!

OK, now to update the Tally Board. May hasn't been pretty!!!!


April 17 - 10-8 win against Orioles. (Overcame 7-0 deficit.)

May 23 - 3-2 loss to the Mets. (Papelbon lets up a 2 out 2 run homer in the 9th to Omir Santos)

- 1!!

Bonnie and Clyde did a better job dodging bullets!

Let's GO!


  1. Papelbon looked like the "village idiot" in the Bottom of the 9th with that play at 2nd.
    Fans of the Yankees can also make a list like this and we also can say What could have been.
    Even though the Yankees are "in the race" now I still do not think they have the pitching and defense to really be a contender. If I was a Red Sox fan. (I would rather be waterboarded) I would still be more concerned with the Rays and maybe the Jays.

  2. We got the teamwork, to make the Dream work, let's go, LET'S GO METS.

  3. It is possible that we will have more teeth grinders than dodged bullets this season and still win the division. While the Papelbon blown save was painful to absorb, the Sox have subsequently had two "coasters." As long as we have two coasters for every teeth grinder then we're in business. One of the trademarks of recent Sox teams seems to be (I don't have the stats for this) that they don't lose big very often. In that sense, having more teeth grinders than usual is not a bad thing in the scheme of things.
